A delicious, one-pan meal featuring juicy steak bites and crispy, buttery potatoes. This dish is perfect for a quick and hearty dinner, combining savory garlic and butter flavors with tender steak and golden potatoes.


  • Steak and Potatoes:
  • 1.5 lbs steak (sirloin, ribeye, or tenderloin), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1.5 lbs baby potatoes, halved or quartered if large
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Optional:
  • Red pepper flakes, for a bit of heat
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
  • In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the halved baby potatoes and cook until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  1. Cook the Steak:
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Season the steak bites with salt and pepper.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the steak pieces in a single layer (work in batches if needed). Cook for about 3-4 minutes until browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Remove steak from the skillet and set aside.
  1. Prepare the Garlic Butter Sauce:
  • In the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons of butter and let it melt.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the thyme, rosemary, and oregano. Stir to combine.
  1. Cook the Potatoes:
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet.
  • Add the pre-cooked potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook until golden and crispy, about 5-7 minutes.
  1. Combine and Serve:
  • Return the cooked steak bites to the skillet, tossing them with the potatoes and garlic butter sauce until everything is well coated and heated through.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, letting it melt and mix with the steak and potatoes.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and, if desired, sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
  • Serve immediately, optionally with lemon wedges on the side.
